Is there much difference between Prilosec and Prevacid?
Asked by Joseph Yates 1 year ago.

Prilosec and Prevacid are both Hydrogen ion pump inhibitors. They are used for exactly the same reason and for the most part are interchangeable. (This was your question wasn't it?) Prilosec OTC or the Prilosec Rx product seem to be weaker than the effect of taking Prevacid. This will be important if you have severe gastritis. If that is the case, then 2 Prilosec per day will have an equal effect to one Prevacid 30 mg. Moderate gastritis you will not notice any difference. Even at two per day, the cost of the Prilosec OTC $29.00 /42 tabs is much better than the cost of Prevacid 30 mg $177.00/ 30 capsules. Both meds can cause diarrhea and that seems to be the main side effect but of all my patients, I have have only a few that needed to stop the medication due to this. Some things you can do to reduce gastritis if any apply: 1 Do not eat chocolates. Theophylline in the chocolate is a potent inducer of stomach acid. 2. Do not smoke. Nicotine is a potent inducer of stomach acid production. 3. Do not drink alcohol. ETOH is a potent inducer of stomach acid production. 4. Avoid caffeine drinks. Caffeine is a potent inducer of stomach acid production. Answered by Carri Escher 1 year ago.

Prevacid is a proton pump inhibitor and once you stop it will take a 2 to 3 days for your proton pumps in your stomach to start working again (aka the acid to start being produced again). You can stop it all at once. If you stopped previously and got sick, it most likely will happen again. There are several medication in this medication class that you could switch to if you are experiencing problems with Prevacid, such as Aciphex, Protonix, Nexium, and Prilosec OTC. You could talk to your doctor about a switch or try Prilosec and see if that works for you. Hope that helped! Answered by Gala Oleson 1 year ago.


When should I stop my Prevacid pills.....?
I have Prevacid 30mg for 2weeks from my doctor & then I went to drugs store to get more Prevacid 30mg but they gave me Prevacid 15mg...Why is that? & I am wonder how long should I take it? I had it since for 2weeks...Until When should I stop it? Thank you!! Asked by Philip Mcgorry 1 year ago.

Prevacid ?? An antacid?? If it were me i would ditch them in the trash can right now............. the purpose of antacids is to neutralise All the acids in your stomach ..... this is not particularly a good thing mate ... as you still need acids such as hydrochloric acid to digest your food ...... with all your digestive juices neutralised the next time you eat the problem simply recurrs and you end up with acid reflux, bloating and gassiness, belching, excessive constipation, wet f*arting (sorry no other way to put it) .... all due to bad digestion caused by food intolerances and made worse by the antacids... you need to pinpoint which foods you are eating that is causing the reflux to start with ...... simply put, when you ingest foods to which you are intolerant your body cannot digest them and they are left to rot in your digestive tract ........ acid reflux is one of the side affects ....... the Prevacid pills simply serve to bandaid the problem until you eat the offending food again. solve it from the source ............ try ditching milk and dairy products as many people find it extremely difficult to digest lactose ....... i used to have wicked heartburn and acid reflux until i ditched the icecream before bed. it's easy to get calcium from leafy and green vegies, broccolli, kale, chard, collard greens, buk choy, carrotts, oranges, rice milk fortified with calcium and even fresh fish such as tuna, salmon and sardines are rich in calcium. You really should get yourself fully assessed by a Naturopath or nutritionally oriented physician and ditch the Prevacid pills. try it mate.... it works. peace baby ♥ Answered by Shalanda Lichorat 1 year ago.

Prevacid Acid Reflux pills unhealthy?
I have been taking prevacid acid reflux pills for almost a year now, i am supposed to stop in about a month or 2, but are they unhealthy? will they cause problems for me in the future even when i stop taking them? Asked by Ken Madia 1 year ago.

Prevacid is a proton-pump inhibitor (PPI), which means it acts on the pareital cells of the stomach to reduce stomach acid production by as much as 90%+. While there have not been a lot of studies on long-term PPI use, some of the general risks associated with long-term use include decreased vitamin absorption (specifically the B vitamins) and decreased calcium absorption. Since gastric acid can help kill certain pathogens in your digestive system, long-term use can make you more susceptible to certain types of pneumonia and bacterial infections such as "c-diff" or Clostridium difficile. Obviously, the above potential complications stop when you stop taking the Prevacid. The vast majority of people who take PPIs never have adverse reactions or complications. I myself have been taking them for almost 10 years (although not consistently) and have never had any adverse reactions. The reason most physicians want patients to take PPIs for over a year is that when stomach acid damages your esophagus it can take several months for the esophagus to heal properly. When the esophagus is damaged repeatedly by stomach acids, potential precancerous changes (Barrett's Esophagus) can occur in esophageal cells. Unless you have major health problems or are over 50, you probably shouldn't worry about problems taking your Prevacid. Answered by Harris Folds 1 year ago.

Acid reflux in and of itself does not cause for "pills stuck in throat". Many people have problems swallowing pills, capsules, etc. The best advice is to drink something first to lubricate the back of the mouth and the throat then take the pill with water or best with food, if this is acceptable. The majority of individuals do not take their medications correctly. One should drink a minimum of an eight ounce glass of water with each medication. Water is non-reactive with the majority of medications and other things like carbonated beverages, tea, coffee, juice, etc. can be reactive. In addition it is important to read the information for each medication provided on the label. Some medications, as iron tablets, are meant to be taken with food while others are best on an empty stomach. The irritation to the mucus membrane is brought on by the pill's beginning to dissolve and its reaction to the sensitive mucus membrane. Hope this helps ... Answered by Deedee Stakley 1 year ago.

Prevacid??
ok so i have constipation or some kind of bowel problem and my doctor prescribed something....i went to riteaid n the lady gave me prevacid....is that in any way related?? coz i think she misread it coz it started with a 'p' but she took the prescription paper too so i dont know what it said....what do i do? Asked by Latrisha Dupre 1 year ago.

Typically, Prevacid is for acid reflux. Heartburn. If you went in to see your doctor in the first place I'm guessing OTC drugs such as milk of magnesia, (constipation) didn't work for you. I have read however diarrhea is a possible side effect when taking Prevacid. Your doctor may feel this drug is warranted given your symptoms and lifestyle . I would suggest simply calling your doctor to get clarification on what you were given. Good luck to you! Answered by Therese Marchuk 1 year ago.

call your doctor and verify what he gave you, prevacid is for acid reflux and tummy upset, wont help with bowel issues unfortunatly. Answered by Kimberlee Tillotson 1 year ago.

Prevacid reduces the acid in your stomach, which in turn prevents iron absorption. The effects of the Prevacid last all day,so there's no "best" time to take your iron. However, you do not want to take the two together, because iron will potentially prevent the absorption of Prevacid. This isn't a big problem, but if you're taking the iron to treat anemia, it will just take a bit longer for the anemia to resolve itself. If you're taking the iron just to be healthy, then there's potentially nothing to worry about Probably the best way to structure your regimen would be to take your iron at night with a bit of orange juice (if your doctors says this is okay) and then your Prevacid in the morning at least 30 minutes before you eat breakfast. The point is to not take them too close together. Of course, if you have any concerns, certainly speak to your doctor. Answered by Noe Salim 1 year ago.

good question, you should take your prevacid 1/2 hour before meals, and you should take your iron with meals (OJ is good) but you shouldn't take iron within about 2 hours of your prevacid. I would say take your prevacid as directed wait until about two hours after you eat and take your iron with a snack or some orange juice. You could also take iron with vitamin c to enhance it's absorption. Answered by Lovella Lockamy 1 year ago.

Note that I Tim 4 implies that abandoning the faith is a real possibility. There is no "once saved, always saved" guarantee in Christianity. You have to endure to the end. 1) Do you pray on a daily basis for these cults……that the Lord would open their eyes to the truth? No, but I certainly pray for cultists on occasion. As Jesus said (John 17), "I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours." 2) Do you know someone who has unfortunately been drawn into one of these things? Note that both Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons are odd Christian sects and not cults; both tend to display the fruits of Christianity. I have friends in both organizations. The mark of a cult is that followers are not free to leave. Islam and Satanism are prime examples. 3) Are you in the Word daily…..keeping yourself armored from spiritual attack? Most certainly. The scriptures are now available with a few mouse clicks (see link). We are also defended by prayer and by the study of apologetics. Cheers, Bruce Answered by Estell Tollinchi 1 year ago.

Whats better Zantac or Prevacid?
My doctor told me i have an option of two meds to use to help my son with acid reflex.... he said Zantac 15 mgs 3 times daily with 2 mls. or prevacid 30 mgs once daily.. what would work better? Asked by Kellee Maron 1 year ago.

Prevacid is way more effective in my opinion. I've tried both. I was on Prevacid for about a year - perfect, no reflux. I switched to Zantac (because my insurance wouldn't cover Prevacid anymore), and I still got reflux all the time on Zantac. I changed insurance, got back on Prevacid - perfect. Answered by Jenae Herbster 1 year ago.

I used to take Prevacid for about four years, 15 mgs twice daily. My mother, also with AR, took 30 mgs once a day. She has since switched to Zegerid and I am now on Protonix. I know nothing of Zantac, I think. As it is, prevacid is very effective. I think it just wore off on me as I got older. I'd start him with prevacid. It has fewer risks, as far as I can tell, and is effective, if a bit expensive. Answered by Jeanett Bivings 1 year ago.

The two work differently. I personally like Prevacid but others are fine with H2 blockers like Zantac, so I supposed it comes down to your preference. Niether is inherently better, per se, I've just had better results with Prevacid and other PPIs. Answered by Dale Mitchan 1 year ago.

Prevacid reduces the acid in your stomach, which in turn prevents iron absorption. The effects of the Prevacid last all day,so there's no "best" time to take your iron. However, you do not want to take the two together, because iron will potentially prevent the absorption of Prevacid. This isn't a big problem, but if you're taking the iron to treat anemia, it will just take a bit longer for the anemia to resolve itself. If you're taking the iron just to be healthy, then there's potentially nothing to worry about Probably the best way to structure your regimen would be to take your iron at night with a bit of orange juice (if your doctors says this is okay) and then your Prevacid in the morning at least 30 minutes before you eat breakfast. The point is to not take them too close together. Of course, if you have any concerns, certainly speak to your doctor. Answered by Deb Alconcel 1 year ago.

good question, you should take your prevacid 1/2 hour before meals, and you should take your iron with meals (OJ is good) but you shouldn't take iron within about 2 hours of your prevacid. I would say take your prevacid as directed wait until about two hours after you eat and take your iron with a snack or some orange juice. You could also take iron with vitamin c to enhance it's absorption. Answered by Wilma Antczak 1 year ago.

Note that I Tim 4 implies that abandoning the faith is a real possibility. There is no "once saved, always saved" guarantee in Christianity. You have to endure to the end. 1) Do you pray on a daily basis for these cults……that the Lord would open their eyes to the truth? No, but I certainly pray for cultists on occasion. As Jesus said (John 17), "I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours." 2) Do you know someone who has unfortunately been drawn into one of these things? Note that both Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons are odd Christian sects and not cults; both tend to display the fruits of Christianity. I have friends in both organizations. The mark of a cult is that followers are not free to leave. Islam and Satanism are prime examples. 3) Are you in the Word daily…..keeping yourself armored from spiritual attack? Most certainly. The scriptures are now available with a few mouse clicks (see link). We are also defended by prayer and by the study of apologetics. Cheers, Bruce Answered by Rupert Skold 1 year ago.

This is really something you should ask your doctor or pharmacist. Do you really think you can trust a random person online to tell you what medicine to take? Answered by Francis Broderson 1 year ago.


Whats better Zantac or Prevacid?
My doctor told me i have an option of two meds to use to help my son with acid reflex.... he said Zantac 15 mgs 3 times daily with 2 mls. or prevacid 30 mgs once daily.. what would work better? Asked by Blondell Wooster 1 year ago.

Prevacid is way more effective in my opinion. I've tried both. I was on Prevacid for about a year - perfect, no reflux. I switched to Zantac (because my insurance wouldn't cover Prevacid anymore), and I still got reflux all the time on Zantac. I changed insurance, got back on Prevacid - perfect.

I used to take Prevacid for about four years, 15 mgs twice daily. My mother, also with AR, took 30 mgs once a day. She has since switched to Zegerid and I am now on Protonix. I know nothing of Zantac, I think. As it is, prevacid is very effective. I think it just wore off on me as I got older. I'd start him with prevacid. It has fewer risks, as far as I can tell, and is effective, if a bit expensive. Answered by Elizebeth Espy 1 year ago.

The two work differently. I personally like Prevacid but others are fine with H2 blockers like Zantac, so I supposed it comes down to your preference. Niether is inherently better, per se, I've just had better results with Prevacid and other PPIs. Answered by Michael Schroder 1 year ago.
